    • Every day to be library day
    • Skills to be taught at the time of need in connection with content curriculum instead of in isolation
    • Flexible Access allows students to utilize the library on an as needed basis to return/checkout items, do research, and/or complete assignments
    • Flexible Scheduling allows teachers to collaborate with the library staff to implement, teach, and support content curriculum areas.  Teachers may schedule story times, skills lessons, and/or research activities.  Classes, small groups, or individuals may come multiple times in a week for various amounts of time depending on the activity.
  • Students are responsible for the items that they check out.  We do not charge fines, but we ask students to return items promptly.  If they need the items for a longer period of time, most items can be renewed.  Students are required to pay for items that are lost or damaged.
